A Day in Series: Potsdam!

A Day in Series: Potsdam!

Potsdam is a 1000 year old city with lots of historic buildings and landscapes as a World Heritage Site! If you are close to Berlin, you should definitely visit this unbelievably beautiful city with lots of castles, gardens and many more. We owe so much to 5 great architectures -Peter Joseph Lenné, Georg Wenzeslaus von Knobelsdorff, Carl Phillipp Christian von Gontard, Karl Friedrich Schinkel and Friedrich Ludwig Persius- that re-built the city after Second World War. And today Potsdam have lots of historical landmarks and places that on the UNESCO World Heritage list! To reach this incredible city, you can fly to Berlin and take a boat from Wannsee, or take a S-Bahn from Berlin. To explore the city you can use the tram and bus, but it is a bit confusing since all those Zone's but everyone will be so happy to help you and speak English very well.

Explore the place where Churchill, Truman and Stalin wrote world history! Check out the amazing Cecilienhof Palace which was built between 1914 and 1917 in Tudor style for Crown Prince William and his wife Cecilie von Mecklenburg. Not only the palace is marvelous, also it has an amazing garden (The New Garden) which has beautiful view of Königswald on the banks of the river Havel and they are on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The second stop should be 1990, Sanssouci park which is an enormous and glorious park outside of Berlin. This park is also on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Sanssouci park got its name from its beautiful rococo styled palace which is so far the most romantic palaces in the World with its vineyards, amazing interior, temples, fountains, marble statues and many more!

Another must visit place is the Babelsberg Palace which is a Gothic palace, built as the summer residence of Prince William. The palace was built in 1849 and since 1990, Babelsberg Palace has been also a part of the UNESCO World Heritage List!
